2012 Summer Academy Enrichment Programs

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The staff at The Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science (MS)2 has been working diligently to make this year’s Summer Academy Enrichment Program a wonderful experience for all of our students. The selections available, while academically stimulating, are also fun and exciting; however, space is limited.

The Enrichment Programs will not be available to students who receive a mandatory notification letter for Summer Academy BRIDGE Program or Summer Academy RECOVERY Program.

· ARCHITECTURE CAMP– July 9 – July 13, 2012
The intent of the course is to introduce students to the field of architecture and planning. This program will relate architecture to their lives in the District of Columbia. The course will educate them on the use of architecture while applying the lessons they have learned in mathematics and science. Students will learn the importance of design, programming of spaces and design presentation. They will be educated on materials and how these materials are put together to form structures. The end result is to give the students the opportunity to think and act like professional Architects.

· BUSINESS CAMP– July 16 – July 20, 2012
Students will be introduced to the concept of learning how to start their own small business. Students will become economically productive members of society by improving their academic, business, technology, and life skills. In the process, they develop an important understanding about business, lifelong learning, and themselves.

· WEATHER CAMP– July 23 – Jul 27, 2012

Campers will receive broad exposure and training in weather forecasting, environmental modeling, and measurements. Over the course of the program, students will receive exposure to the college experience through their interactions on campus, interactions with Atmospheric Sciences STEM and much more. Campers will also build their own hot air balloons.
